Garland Favorito and Voter GA have evidence that 1.7 million ballot images across Georgia from the 2020 Election disappeared and/or were destroyed.

Favorito and VoterGA presented information in a press conference in November of 2021. In this presentation, VoterGA reported that ballot images that are required by law to be maintained by the state after every election were missing and apparently destroyed in multiple counties across Georgia. He provided a map of these counties.

74 out of 159 counties did not provide ballot images indicating that they were destroyed.

Boeing has announced it is laying off more than 100 employees as the company sinks deeper into crisis. 

Boeing filed a WARN notice, a legal announcement of planned mass layoffs, with the Alabama department of commerce. 

Overall 128 job will be cut at the company's Huntsville plant beginning on June 28. Boeing says the job losses are linked to delays in a contract with Nasa in its space division. 

It comes as the company's commerical planes division battles multiple allegations of safety failures, lawsuits and three planes with technical issues in just two days

'We have notified some team members in Huntsville of a potential layoff, as programs are affected by decisions external to Boeing,' the beleaguered company said in a statement.

Roughly 70 Americans in Colorado are being monitored for bird flu due to potential exposure.

The dairy farm workers will be tested for the virus if they show any symptoms, though this has not been the case so far, local health officials said.

Details about their ages, gender and conditions have not been revealed, but they all worked on a farm in the northeastern part of the state.

Only one person so far - a farmer in Texas - has tested positive for H5N1 virus this outbreak, but the CDC fears many more could be infected and not coming forward.

It comes as the FDA's top official revealed the agency is gearing up for a bird flu pandemic in people that could kill one in four of those it infects.

An all-white school board in Virginia has voted to restore the names of Robert E Lee and other Confederate military leaders to two public schools in a backlash to the racial reckoning that followed the police murder of George Floyd.

The decision to restore the names of Lee, Stonewall Jackson and Turner Ashby was taken on Friday morning by the six-member school board in Shenandoah county. Only one of the members voted against the resolution.

As a result of the vote, Mountain View high school will return to its pre-2020 name, Stonewall Jackson high school, and Honey Run elementary school will once again be named Ashby-Lee elementary school – honoring three men who were seminal in leading the attempt to secede from the Union in defense of slavery.

Special Counsel Robert Hur will not recommend criminal charges against President Biden for mishandling classified documents, according to his report after a months-long investigation into the president's alleged improper retention of classified records. 

Hur has been investigating Biden’s improper retention of classified records since last year. Those records included classified documents about military and foreign policy in Afghanistan, among other records related to national security and foreign policy which Hur said implicated "sensitive intelligence sources and methods." 

"We conclude that no criminal charges are warranted in this matter," the report states. "We would reach the same conclusion even if the Department of Justice policy did not foreclose criminal charges against a sitting president."

A wide range of other military equipment is due to go to Israel, including joint direct attack munitions (JDAMS), which convert dumb bombs into precision weapons; and tank rounds, mortars and armored tactical vehicles, Senator Jim Risch, the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told reporters.

Risch said those munitions were not moving through the approval process as quickly as they should be, noting some had been in the works since December, while assistance for Israel more typically sails through the review process within weeks.

Biden administration officials have said they are reviewing additional arms sales, and Biden warned Israel in a CNN interview on Wednesday that the U.S. would stop supplying weapons if Israeli forces make a major invasion of Rafah.

Israel's assault on Gaza was triggered by an Oct. 7 attack by Islamist Hamas militants, which by its tallies killed 1,200. The subsequent Israeli bombardment has killed some 35,000 Palestinians, according to local health authorities, and displaced the majority of Gaza's 2.3 million people.


Biden's support for Israel in its war against Hamas has emerged as a political liability for the president, particularly among young Democrats, as he runs for re-election this year. It fueled a wave of "uncommitted" protest votes in primaries and has driven pro-Palestinian protests at U.S. universities.

None of those weapons agreements are part of a spending package Biden signed last month that included about $26 billion to support Israel and provide humanitarian aid.

Risch and Meeks are two of the four U.S. lawmakers - the chair and ranking member of Senate Foreign Relations and chair and ranking member on House Foreign Affairs - who review major foreign weapons deals.


Netanyahu issued a video statement on Thursday saying Israelis "would fight with their fingernails" in an apparent rebuff of Biden.

Republicans accused Biden of backing down on his commitments to Israel. "If the Commander-in-Chief can’t muster the political courage to stand up to radicals on his left flank and stand up for an ally at war, the consequences will be grave," Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said in a Senate speech.

Ten other Senate Republicans held a press conference to announce a non-binding resolution condemning "any action by the Biden Administration to withhold or restrict weapons for Israel."

Some Congressional Democrats welcomed Biden's action.

Senator Chris Murphy, the Democratic chair of the Foreign Relations Mideast subcommittee, cited concern about Rafah

The series aims to expose sexual predators engaging inappropriately with minors.

In a shocking twist revealed in Thursday's episode streamed on kick.com, a member of Zdorovetskiy's security team shared that despite their efforts to bring such predators to justice, they are allegedly being stonewalled by the DA's office.

"They're basically like, 'Don't bring them in. There's nothing that the DA is going to do now. Just write it up, file it, and that's all we can do now,'" the security member recounted, highlighting a purported directive from desk sergeants based on DA Gascón’s policies.

Gaza's Sick and Injured Search for Help as Rafah Assault Brings Hospitals to Their Knees

DEIR AL-BALAH, Gaza Strip (Reuters) - Souad Zohair, 73, has been kept alive by kidney dialysis three days a week at a hospital in Rafah, but that's shut now by Israel's latest offensive. Her daughter brought her up the dangerous coastal road to the last hospital left in the Gaza Strip that still has functioning dialysis machines.

In a crowded room, her blood was trickling through tubes from her hand into the machine. Today, she'll live.

There are 19 machines here. Staff are keeping them running round the clock, 200 sessions a day, with barely enough time to sterilise them between patients, Khattab said. It's not enough.

Zohair's treatment is supposed to last four hours, but in Gaza's brutal medical arithmetic she can have the machine for just two. No one can say when she will get it again.

War in Israel and Gaza

"She will soon get tired, tomorrow or the day after, and I don't know how we will bring her here or where to go," said her daughter Umm Bilal Zohair. "How will we come here if she gets tired at night? There are no ambulances, the area is dangerous, no ambulances will come to us and there's nothing."

Israel's assault around Rafah on the southern edge of the Gaza Strip is finally bringing what was left of the enclave's medical system to its knees, doctors say. Tanks are massed on the outskirts of the city and a huge population of sick and injured is running out of places to go and safe ways to get there.

Fighting has directly shut some of the main medical facilities that had served the half of Gaza's 2.3 million people who have been sheltering in Rafah. The two checkpoints into southern Gaza have also been shut, blocking the arrival of basic supplies such as fuel, though Israel says it reopened its Kerem Shalom crossing on Wednesday and is trying to get aid through.

Israel says any disruption to aid from its latest assault should be brief, and additional field hospitals will be provided near the coast in an area it says is safe.

Meanwhile, the sick and wounded are crowding into Al Aqsa hospital in Deir al-Balah. "There used to be medical aid coming in, and now there is no medical aid," said Ali Abu Khurma, a Jordanian laproscopic surgeon volunteering at Al Aqsa. Basic supplies were missing, like sterile gauze and surgical gowns.

"There are no beds for the patients. The patients are all over the hospital; in the corridors, in the halls, there are beds everywhere. Some have one or two patients on them. In the reception, there are patients on the floor," he told Reuters as the sound of a patient howling in pain could be heard from behind a door to a nearby ward.

"The entire medical sector has collapsed."

Claire's Observations:  As I am reading this article and seeing these images, all I can see, in my  mind's eye, is a  lot of Israeli politicians and military top brass locking arms and dancing the hora together, and singing a brutal Hebrew lyric to that old classic of  "That's the Way I Like it!!

Because when people die of opportunistic infections; starvation, or as a results of previous wounds, you don't need more bombs and bullets to polish them off; it's just that simple, and makes Israeli leadership.... happy.  

And if you don't believe that, why, then, is the IDF ordered to destroy the sanitary systems in the cities, including refugee centers, they have bombed into rubble?!?

Funny how our four stars never mentioned American atrocities until they figured it would help their friends in the IDF

Former Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark Milley threw his own military under the bus yesterday, trying to rationalize the killing and maiming of thousands of Palestinian civilians in the last six months of the Israeli war in Gaza.The following video is a stunning example of how far Israel's supporters in the United States will go to justify what is becoming one of biggest humanitarian catastrophes in the 21st century, sparked by relentless indiscriminate bombing in the densely packed Gaza strip, leaving nearly 35,000 Palestinians dead, most of whom are reported to be innocent civilians. Countless others are still dead under the rubble which covers the entire territory.

He says:

Before we all get self righteous about what Israel is doing, and I feel horrible for the innocent people in Gaza dying, but we shouldn't forget that we United States killed a lot of innocent people in Mosul, in Raqqa, that we the United States killed 12,000 innocent French civilians. And here we are on the 80th anniversary of Normandy, on the prep fires for Normandy. We destroyed 69 Japanese cities, not including Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We slaughtered people in massive numbers, innocent people who had nothing to do with their government, men, women and children. War is a terrible thing. But if it's going to have meaning, if it's going to have any sense of morality, there has to be a political purpose, and it must be achieved rapidly with the least cost and you do by speed.

Nothing he says is not true of course. But Milley skips right past the obvious stick in his self-righteous spokes, which is that the Geneva Conventions were codified in 1949 to prevent the litany of civilian atrocities he ticks off from happening again. War is hell, General Milley, but the international community recognized 75 years ago that innocent slaughter was wrong, and tried to do something about it.

Not to be ignored here, though, is that he is in essence, disparaging American World War II veterans and Iraq veterans too, to make a point of support for what Israel is doing today in Gaza. Funny, Milley and his four-star ilk never mentioned the civilians killed by the U.S. military in Iraq and Syria until they realized that acknowledging it might help get their Israeli friends off the hook. We could have used this kind of candor 10, 20 years ago — when it would have meant something and could have held the U.S. military, including senior military officers like Mark Milley, accountable. Fat chance.

To make matters worse, Milley then nods appreciatively when Palantir CEO Alex Karp chimes in: "The peace activists are actually the war activists, and we're the peace activists." His rationale? Weapons technology companies like his want to make the United States stronger so the country doesn't go to war. Bull.

The whole spectacle is made even more repugnant when you take in the setting: a confab of military officials and weapons contractors, convened to threat-inflate and hawk their wares like garish barkers under the typically euphemistic banner of the "Special Competitive Studies Project," a "non-partisan, non-profit initiative with a clear mission: to make recommendations to strengthen America’s long-term competitiveness as artificial intelligence (AI) and other emerging technologies are reshaping our national security, economy, and society."

Don't forget for a second that Israel's war is not only our war, but in so many ways, our gain, at least for the profiteers — including Milley — who see more personal and professional benefit in supporting Israel, than in defending the integrity of his own fellow Americans.

Israel's National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir on Thursday posted "Hamas ♥ Biden" on the social media platform X after the US president warned he would halt arms shipments if Israel carries out a "full-scale" invasion of Rafah.

"Civilians have been killed in Gaza as a consequence of those bombs and other ways in which they go after population centres," Biden said in an interview with CNN on Wednesday.

Biden's words mark the first time he has explicitly said that the US is considering conditioning arms transfers to Israel.

Around 80,000 people have fled Rafah since Israel launched an intensified military operation in the area on Monday, the UN Palestinian refugee agency (Unrwa) said.

Claire's Observations:  Apparently,  Ben-Gvir firmly believes that he, and the other members of Israel's "War Cabinet" can collectively relieve themselves right in By-di-Bye's  face, and tell him it's raining;    and that's because they know that a true  US military/financial "conditioning" of aid, will only happen when pigs fly.  

With all the intel Mossad and the IDF have on the President and Congress, the Israeli government understands that what it demands, it gets; this is why Ben-Gvir's on-line taunt to Biden feels ..... very strange indeed.

What Ben-Gvir should have understood, is that this statement was pure election-year virtue-signalling ; nothing more, nothing less.  That he did not understand this, and made that post on X, could give one pause to question his sanity at this point.
